Enabling folder and taxonomy navigation in archives

Open the archive details sheet (Tools - Manage Archives) and go to the General data tab. In the Navigation pane section you can then select folder and/or taxonomy navigation.

Folder navigation

Folder navigation implies that FotoWeb will show the entire folder structure in the indexed area and allow users to navigate up and down the folder tree to view the assets stored in each individual folder. The top level folder is shown by default - so if you index a folder called e.g. "Images", in which there are several subfolders, the "Images" folder will be shown in the folder navigation. It is possible to remove this top level folder from the folder hierarchy, thus also removing it in the folder breadcrumb.

  • By enabling Folder navigation, users can browse individual subfolders within the document folder. The document folder itself will not be shown or included in the breadcrumb.
  • If you also enable Show document folders, the indexed document folder at the top level is also included in the folder browsing. It will also be included in the breadcrumb.
  • By disabling folder navigation altogether, no breadcrumb will be exposed to users at all.

Taxonomy navigation

By enabling Taxonomy navigation on the same page you can define metadata that's exposed in the side panel in the user interface and allow users to tick the metadata they want to filter the archive contents by.

You can learn all about how taxonomies work in this guide.
